I am using the Netbeans editor to create some simple guis. In one gui i put some labels that have no text and are used to display error messages when they happen. The problem is that if a JLabel has not text, it is like it does not exist in the editor so I can't select it, modify it, or even delete it. Do you know how to select a JLabel in the Netbeans editor if it has no text?
I know that I can select the components from the inspector. But if a label has no text, then selecting it in the editor does not open the Properties window on the right. This means that I can't modify it after I initialize it with an empty text.
